Candy corn and now kid cereal! Trending/sweet nostalgia/comfort ?  Stepmom handed me  a container of nut mix. Oddly has a couple bits of dried pineapple, lots of pepitas and almonds. I think she picked out the elements she liked and this was left. Re-roasting at 350 to get them bit darker. Size differential leads to a bit of bitter but I edo bitterweet

I bought some Almond Roca® Buttercrunch Popcorn this past weekend.

The Werther's Caramel Popcorn I snacked on a while ago tasted much better than this.

This Almond Roca Buttercrunch popcorn doesn't taste like Almond Roca to me. Just sweetness.

As mentioned on the fun stuff topic, I bought these online and they arrived yesterday. I vaguely planned to have some for breakast, but that didn't work out so I decided to just have a small taste before comitting to a full meal. They are sold as goose liver (foie gras) sausages, although the main component is goose breast meat, with liver coming second. They come from Heilongjiang, China's northernmost province bordering Siberia, Russia.

 

I had 500 grams / 17.64 ounces total or four fat sausages each about 18 cm / 7 inches long, took one and sliced it on a bias. Fried them up and tasted just with some blck pepper. No salt required (see ingredient list below for a formidable list of sodiums).

Before I knew it, I had eaten a whole sausage (just to taste, you understand). They are rather good.

Ingredients as listed - my translation:
 

Goose breast meat, foie gras, water, starch salt, soft white sugar, spices, food additives (sodium glutamate, sodium tripolyphosphate, sodium pyrophosphate, sodium hexametaphosphate, sodium nitrite), pig casing.

All good stuff!

A co-worker brought in to work a package of the new Pop Tart Bites (click).

I tried a few and have to say they aren't very good. The crust-to-fruit filling ratio is off...too much crust. They are frosted, too, but that didn't help much.

Pass them by...

Trying out the Chinese goat milk cheese I received as a gift yesterday. With Scottish oatcakes.

 

It is a pure white hard cheese but very bland to the point of tastelessness. Not a drop of goaty funkiness. Needs salt and some pickles or the like to lift it up.

Jelly doughnut and oatmeal raisin cooky - both from Lidl:

The doughnut is good, but that cooky is fantastic.  I make good oatmeal raisin cookies, but theirs is just better.  

 

Don't tell anyone I occasionally eGullet at work, but this afternoon we had a small farewell celebration for a coworker and I had three cookies.

My latest end of eve thing are the Kedem tea biscuits. Either chocolate, vanilla, or original. Crispy, barely sweet and perfect with a cup of tea. Uuallyno more than $1 and maybe change per packet.   https://thetakeout.com/kedem-tea-biscuits-cookie-kosher-budget-grocery-shoppin-1840765801

I grew up loving Nabisco's Social Tea cookies (weird kid) and I think they are very similar to the Kedem ones.  They are still a favorite.
